- Pathway Narrative:
Glucose passes through GLUT transporter located in the cell membrane, after which it undergoes a process called glycolysis in the cytoplasm.
- Acts as a tunnel for glucose to enter the cell
- Interacts with:
- Interesting Facts:
Many transporters use ATP for energy to pump in specific molecules, but GLUT relies on the concentration gradient of glucose to shuttle glucose into the cell in a process called facilitated diffusion
